We are so sad to hear of the passing of our cousin,Lester. Aunt Irene, Debbie, Sam and Suzanne you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Even though it was several years ago now, I had the good fortune of spending time with Lester when he came to Vermont. He was a wonderful person and was taken too young. Sending hugs and lots of love to your entire family. <3
